Avoid peak travel seasons
It is obvious, but if you can avoid traveling in school holidays especially the summer holidays or over Christmas, avoid it! This is because everything’s usually more expensive at least twice the normal prices!
Getting the most out of your meals
At a lot of restaurants, the premium food, that takes more time and preparation isn’t that much more than the cheaper easier to prepare food. Not to mention the cost of the raw supplies. A good example would be at a buffet. Only take the expensive food such as shrimp, meats, fish, and vegetables. Keep the grains down to a minimum. My sister who worked at http://rxcatering.net gave me this tip as she knows from experience how much it takes to set up a buffet.
Check your insurance
Travel insurance never seems useful or important till you need it; then it becomes vital. Shop around and take it out as soon as you’ve booked a trip as it could cover you for some unforeseen circumstances that might result in you having to cancel before you travel.
Saving money on flights, buses, and trains
Be flexible; Traveling mid-week is often cheaper than at weekends – something you can do with just a Monday/Friday off work. If you are flexible, you can compare rates across a whole month using Skyscanner for the cheapest fares.Kayak explore is my ultimate cheap flight finding tool.
Compare prices: Stranded on where to start when you’re searching for cheap flights? You can compare flight prices on Skyscanner as I’ve personally found it to be the best flight search engine. Similarly, you can also compare prices on Momondo.
Consider new to your destinations: If there is a place you’ve never been to and never really considered to visit, just go for it! You never know how exciting they would turn out to be as they say you never know if you never try. You might love exploring these places.
Search in incognito mode; You will notice a huge difference if you try this and NEVER forget to do this. Searching in an incognito browser is bound to give you cheap flights and you can also clear your cookies before searching the same routes/destinations.
Look at indirect flights; If you’ve got time but not money, going via somewhere else might bring your flight cost down more than you’d ever imagine!
Check for hidden extras; Luggage is the main one-most budget short-haul flights include only hand luggage. Be careful about what type and how much luggage you bring along. Most airlines charge extra luggage after the recommended number and also charge on heavier luggage than the recommended weight.
Book your trains early; Traveling by train? Maybe you should consider having an earlier booking to avoid the haul that comes with late booking. Advance fares are released around 12 weeks in advance, which is when they’ll be cheapest.
Luggage and Packing tips
Travel light; If your flight’s hand luggage only, you might need to streamline your packing to avoid extra costs and case charge. It’s easy to do on a weekend city break
Save on miniature toiletries; Instead of buying mini versions of stuff you already have, grab some travel bottles and decant the products you have at home. It is cheaper and better for the environment.
Buy before you travel; One may end up buying unnecessary stuff that one may not need. Buying before traveling enables one to buy stuff that they may need during the trip.It’s hella cheaper to get thermals from Amazon than from Canada and Iceland.…
